• Rose MURPHY - I Can't Give You Anything But Chee-Chee

A powerful, percussive pianist and the possessor of a truly unique voice and eccentric singing style, which led to her becoming universally known as 'The Chee Chee Girl', ROSE MURPHY enjoyed her biggest successes in the late 40s and early/mid 50s.

Featured herein are her US national hits 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love', 'When I Grow Too Old To Dream' and 'Cecelia', alongside regional (New York) successes like 'Time On My Hands', 'Sweet Georgia Brown' and 'The Best Things In Life Are Free'.

Also included are her UK hits 'Busy Line' (which later famously featured in a British Telecom TV commercial), 'Gee, I Wonder What The Trouble Can Be', and 'Me And My Shadow'.

Included as a unique bonus track is Frankie Valli's tribute to Rose, her signature song 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love', from the first Four Seasons' LP.

At present there are no other Rose Murphy compilations on the market, which makes this fab collection of her early recordings indispensable.
